Drive to win provincial high school football title

George Myrer

The Citadel Phoenix blanked the Auburn Drive Eagles 39-0 to capture the School Sport Nova Scotia football championship on Sunday at Saint Mary’s University.

The Phoenix dominated on both sides of the ball. Quarterback Drew Clothier threw one touchdown pass and ran for a pair while running back Sascha Steenbeek scorched the Eagles for 185 yards on the ground and a major. Defensive tackle Ethan Legere was a major disrupter on defence for Citadel with two sacks and a fumble recovery for a touchdown and Jacob Fougere and AJ Metlej each had an interception.

“That was a great team performance, and a great team win,” said co-head coach Jon Dyer. “Our players played so well, battled early and stuck with the plan.”

The victory capped an unbeaten year for the Phoenix, who went 8-0 in the regular season and won both playoff games.

“Hats off to Auburn on a great season, they will be back again I’m sure,” said Dyer. “But today was about our seniors and the effort and commitment they made all year. The team was near perfect today and we were perfect for the season.”

It’s a return to high school football supremacy for the Phoenix, who won 11 of 12 titles from 2008 to 2019. COVID-19 wiped out the 2020 season and Auburn won its first provincial banner in 2021.
